Halfway there... almost
Posted on the 5th of November, 2016 at 3:27 pm

The boys from Chester Hill High School are almost halfway to reaching their goal. On Saturday, 11 November, they raced the Sydney Striders' season-ending 10k race at Lane Cove, with all students completing the undulating course admirably in hot conditions.

Although the boys have run up to 13km in training, this was their first outing over 10km in race conditions, which will serve to prepare them well for their final goal of completing the Cadbury Half Marathon in Hobart, on January 15, 2017.

Having only been training since August, the boys have progressed well as a result of their commitment to achieving their goal, and all completed the course in under an hour, with our fastest student, Eh Kwa Lar, finishing in 54:00.

The Run Beyond Project is now helping students in 5 schools, and needs your support to continue to provide opportunities for these deserving students. Contributions can be made at the link below, and are extremely appreciated.

Wild Resilience
Posted on the 6th of October, 2016 at 3:30 pm

So much has happened since our last update, with students from Evans High School and Chifley College Shallvey Campus graduating and another cohort commencing their journey at Katoomba High School.

The Evans High School girls had prepared thoroughly with multiple training runs near their goal race distance, and the result at the Westlink M7 Blacktown Running Festival was almost a formality, with all girls finishing with big smiles spread wide across their faces.

It is testimant to the resilience of our students that all the girls at Chifley College Shalvey Campus also ended their goal race with similar smiles, despite the fact that one of them had rolled an ankle mid-race at their goal event at Running Wild and was unfortunately unable to finish. It takes an extraordinary amount of courage to smile in the face of adversity and we're pleased to see our graduates demonstrating this characteristic. Can you pick whose ankle was rolled? We certain can't from these smiles!!!


Meanwhile, Chester Hill High School's 2016 cohort has commenced training for the 2017 Cadbury Hobart Half Marathon and are progressing well, with their first 10km training run now behind them. There's a long road ahead, but the boys have demonstrated a great deal of commitment so far. Continuing in this fashion will see them well prepared.

Finally, The Run Beyond Project is pleased to welcome Katoomba High School aboard, with these girls currently in training for a Sydney Trail Series event later in the year. Keep up the great work, girls!!!

Going Beyond!
Posted on the 11th of July, 2016 at 5:59 pm

There is a lot going on at The Run Beyond Project in 2016, with the graduation of our first cohort and two new schools onboard.

In January 2016 our first team of students from Chester Hill High School completed the project's final task at the Cadbury Hobart Half Marathon, where they performed magnificently! 

Following this, our second school - Evans High School - commenced the Run Beyond Project program with a group of four girls who are working towards completion of the 10k event at the M7 Westlink Blacktown Running Festival on July 31. A third school has now signed up and will be commencing the program in term 3. Watch this space for more information!

Behind the scenes, volunteers are working tirelessly to formally register The Run Beyond Project as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and with the support of  our corporate partners, raising much needed funds to continue to help our students Run Beyond the doubts, Run Beyond the fears and take on the world!

The Run Beyond Project
Posted on the 5th of February, 2016 at 1:07 pm

At the conclusion of the 2015-16 program which saw our 5 stars from Cheso travel to Tasmania for the Cadbury Hobart Half Marathon, the project morphed into it's current incarnation, known as The Run Beyond Project. 

It's a symbolic shift as we seek to encourage our participants to reach beyond the limitations we so often place on ourselves which prevent us reaching our potential. Run beyond the doubts, run beyond the fears, run beyond the obstacles and take on the world!
